Montessori Activity: Dressing Basket

Inspired by Counting Coconuts

Age: From 3 years old


1. Shirt with buttons
2. Baby-clothing with snappers
3. Sweater with zipper
4. Belt with buckle
5. Shoe with laces
6. Jeans with hook & eye
7. Shoes with velcro
8. Pants with drawstrings (bow)
9. Basket or box


Instead of presenting the whole basket, take out each piece of item and demonstrate it on a tray as an activity for younger preschoolers. Thus, the above items will provide 8 activities :-)

Additional Information:

It is not necessary to buy the expensive Montessori dressing frames. Create your own Dressing Basket for your child with real items instead.
